WINNIPEG - While the work on the ice for the Winnipeg Jets may be over, the focus shifts to what's shaping up to be a busy offseason for the club.

All season long, players, coaches, and management praised the team's depth as being a key piece to their success. Now, a large portion of the "depth" is looking for a new contract - 14 players from the current roster, to be exact.

Five of the 14 skaters set to hit the free agent market include veteran forward Paul Stastny, Toby Enstrom, Shawn Matthias, Matt Hendricks and goaltender Michael Hutchinson. The other nine including Jacob Trouba, Josh Morrissey, Joe Morrow, Tucker Poolman Adam Lowry, Joel Armia, Brandon Tanev, Marko Dano and Vezina-nominated goaltender Connor Hellebuyck will become restricted free agents on July 1st, 2018.

Jets reflect on memorable season, but are motivated for more

Wheeler, Maurice know the work for next season begins in the summer

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - It's still hard for the Winnipeg Jets to believe that their run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs is over.

The team experienced its first postseason win, as well as their first and second series wins, before being eliminated by the Vegas Golden Knights in five games in the Western Conference Final.

"I think you still wake up today, you were prepared to still be playing," said captain Blake Wheeler. "That's the hard part. In the span of seven days, you go from having everything right in front of you - a lot of hope and expectation - and it all changes in a week."

While many Jets were complimentary of Vegas' performance throughout the series, it's still a tough pill to swallow - especially after the high the team experienced following the Game 7 win over Nashville, just two days before the start of the series against the Golden Knights.

"You come out of a Nashville series against the Presidents' Trophy winners, go to seven games, and you feel really good about yourself. You win Game 1 here, and you feel like you're right there on top of the world," said Andrew Copp. "We just learned how small that margin of error is. It's crazy. One minute you're up 1-0, and a few days later our season is done. Still trying to process a little bit. We just learned what it takes to get here - first of all we learned how to get here - but it's that much harder to finish the job."

Maurice wants Jets to embrace the challenge of Game Five against Vegas

Jets face 3-1 series deficit, but are focused solely on one game

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - The further a team goes in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the more intense the pressure becomes.

For the Winnipeg Jets, who face a 3-1 series deficit to the Vegas Golden Knights, that pressure has now reached its highest level.

The need a win in Game Five tomorrow at Bell MTS Place to keep the Western Conference Final going. It's this kind of pressure that head coach Paul Maurice knows his team will embrace.

The Jets have faced elimination only once so far in the postseason, and came through in Game Seven against the Nashville Predators in the Second Round.

"I want them to take their experience between Game Six and Seven, and create the environment they created there - where they came out with an excitement and a smile on their face," Maurice said. "Going into Game Seven, there was as much pressure in that game as there was here. It's the exact same game. This one is at home, we'll need that crowd, and they've been great for us.

"Both teams, all four teams now, there is not quite as much in the tank as there was before, so you're looking to draw on that."

LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Even though they're in uncharted territory, the Winnipeg Jets remain confident in their ability to bounce back.

Facing a 2-1 series deficit going into Game Four against the Vegas Golden Knights tonight, Blake Wheeler likes what he's seen from his team in the days since the 4-2 loss in Game Three.

"You don't like losing," said Wheeler. "So when you have a group of guys that don't like losing, you tend to play pretty intense to try and stop losing.

"You want to win."
